Thanks one more time to mjg0725 for this bottle, the last glass standing from our trade. Svelte 500ML bottle split with my wife (you wonder why? No, not that, we're done with babies, knock violently on wood).

The pour is going fine until the last few ounces, when a glop of sediment flows off the lip of the bottle & hits the surface of the beer with an (almost) audible 'plop.' Result is a dark orange beer that one cannot see through, though most of the solids seem to have sunk quickly. Minimal carbonation. Nose has more toffee flavor than toffee. Actually, that's all I get, but hey, I like toffee.

Baby Maker does, indeed, make me want to strip off my clothes. Actually, I want to do that most of the time, er, the beer certainly packs a wallop of alcohol. The toffee roar is mixed liberally with candied oranges. Mid-palate is the brain-punch: strong bourbon, gorgeous vanilla, hair-numbing alcohol. Honey & sugary sweetness wrap up the package. If there's a weakness, it's a touch flat & heavy, but hey, I could drink a couple of these. And probably live.

Unique, tasty, aggressive. What's not to like? This kicks ass. Excellent beer.

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high light beige head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of toffee, toasted oak and vanilla are present in the nose along with hints of caramel.
T: The taste very much follows the smell, except that each of the flavors are stronger in nature.
M: It feels full-bodied, very smooth and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The alcohol lends some warming and no stickiness is noticeable.
O: You can tell this beer is very strong from all of the malty sweetness, although it is quite difficult to perceive any flavors of alcohol in the taste. While it isn't that difficult to drink, it is a nice beer to sip and savor next to a fire on a cold winter night. The smell and taste are very similar to a barleywine, but the mouthfeel definitely resembles that of a lager and doesn't have any stickiness.
